Zend Optimizer is an instrument, which is required to execute files protected with Zend Guard - a popular app which is used to encode PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 files with the purpose to protect them from tampering with the program code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by lots of corporations that develop paid script apps, so when you acquire such an app for your website, you'll probably need Zend Optimizer to be present on the server where you'll host it. In case you're a programmer, you can use Zend Guard to protect your program code and make sure that your site visitors or customers will be unable to alter it in whatever way. Sites which use Zend Optimizer usually perform much better since their PHP code is precompiled, thus it's already optimized and will be executed more rapidly.

Zend Optimizer in Cloud Website Hosting

All the cloud website hosting accounts which we provide are created on our state-of-the-art cluster platform and Zend Optimizer is present on all the servers that are part of the clusters. Consequently, you're able to set up and execute script-driven applications that need Zend whatever the package that you choose upon signup. The user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel that is provided with the accounts will make the management of your world wide web presence very simple and activating Zend Optimizer is not an exception due to the fact that it will take a single click to do this. In addition, more experienced users can also insert a php.ini file in a particular domain folder and activate Zend only for a specific domain. As you can switch between a variety of PHP releases, you can enable Zend Optimizer for them in the very same way and manage both new and older apps in the same account.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers

You'll be able to enable Zend Optimizer with every single semi-dedicated server that we offer and it'll take you only a few clicks to do this. When you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you need to head to the PHP Configuration section where you'll find many different options and On/Off buttons for each of them. Zend is among these options, therefore you don't have to do anything more difficult than clicking on its button. Because you can also change the PHP version for your account from the same section, you will need to activate Zend for any new version which you use. In addition, we've also left the option for more experienced users to set the PHP release and the status of Zend Optimizer manually by putting a php.ini file in a particular domain folder. The file will have effect just for this specific website, but not for the website hosting account as a whole.
